Ari Wegner - talks with the French Association of Directors of Photography about her cinematography on "Lady Macbeth"

Ari Wegner is an Australian cinematographer who worked on a number of short films before moving on to feature-length productions in 2011. She presents, in the Directors’ Debuts competition, Lady Macbeth, a film by British director William Oldroyd. A feminine tale set in the Victorian period that is as sombre and tragic as it is rigorous in its form. A look at this project that is at the crossroads between painting and cinematographic imagery.

Gregg Toland, ASC — An Enduring Legacy. Chronicling the brief life and career of one of cinema’s finest artists. By George E. Turner

Reprinted article first published as an American Cinematographer Web Exclusive in theasc.com

The first thought that struck anyone who met Gregg Toland was that he appeared frail, even ill. He had a sallow complexion, was underweight and walked with a stoop that made him appear older than he was. He seemed to be carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. When he spoke of the thing that dominated his life — cinematography — the melancholy look vanished.

Shooting the classic Citizen Kane (1940), Gregg Toland, ASC can be seen crouching directly below the camera, while Orson Wells directs from a wheelchair at right, recovering from a leg injury.

No one could speak more eloquently or knowledgeably or with more enthusiasm. When he was at work, an even greater change took place: He was a dynamo of energy to whom long hours and difficult working conditions meant nothing.
